Not sure why I picked this one over the 72 or 79 for today,
but Im glad I did. If you have the time, give it an ear.
The whole show sounds 'grate', thanks to Mr. Miller's upgrade and the boys just having some fun that night on the Rocks. Its one of my fav venues as well.
I rarely listen to 87s, but damn, the first set is
just fabulous and the second doesnt suck either.
Its sounds like a very energetic night was had by all.
Hope all you forumites have a lovely weekend.

Don't miss this one from '81! Not exactly an overlooked show but not one that gets brought up all to often.
First and foremost there's the Scarlet>Fire which is a Top 15 version (imho). The Scarlet itself is only pretty good but starting with the transition jam into Fire things really cook. The band is really listening to each other in this segment and then Jerry takes over in Fire. His first solo in particular is my favorite, not the hottest ever but its very thoughtful and precise, enough to make you forget that this is from '81 and make you think its '77 (almost).

Beyond all that there's a really fantastic version of Estimated, my favorite post 70s version, with a super hot solo and some really great Jerry/Bobby interplay in the outro jam. In fact Bobby's playing throughout is above average for this era, check out his solo in FOTD. Furthermore there are above average versions of Althea, Eyes, Space and Morning Dew (though the power of the Dew is somewhat muted by the abominable Around and Around that follows it). The only downside is that the source available isn't exactly awesome... a B/B- soundboard with a couple of long and rather sloppily inserted AUD patches, though it is a fairly decent AUD.

Anyway, enough rambling, just listen to the fucker:

The crappy soundboard kills this show for me. I cant believe there's no decent audience recording for this show since 1981 has so many good ones to listen to.

The rhythm devils constantly put on a good show at Red Rox
it seems. Maybe its from those damn monoliths power. This 87 is no exception. Just a little too short if you were to ask me...
Always nice to see ya around ian
